We have been working with ICO for about 2 years to build out the in vehicle user interface for the satellite they launched late last summer. We built a new custom UI based on StreetDeck, integrated with their satellite modems, added data services and even implemented a program listings interface. We are a bit biased but this looks like it is going to blow away cruise cast with a small antenna, a great price point and an array of bi-directional data services all augmenting their 10-15 channels of high quality video.

There are a couple of things to note about the ICO demo.

Does this supply internet?
Not as we think of it. There is a bi-directional data pipe that will allow for services like traffic, weather, movie times, train times, instant messaging, interactive TV and others. It has not been decided which of these features will be included with the final product when it launches.

Can I buy the software?

No. We made this just for ICO. We will make more videos of this later to give people an idea of what we have been working on.
